Together, we made Oakland look good!

Thank you donors! Together, we made Oakland look good! / CivicorpsWe are so grateful for the generous donors who made gifts to support Civicorps. Together, we made Oakland look good!

Over the holidays we raised $54,476 dollars. With your support, Civicorps will serve over 100 young adults and provide:

1,600 hours of education, tailored to students’ individual needs,

1,200 hours of paid job training on real-world work contracts, and

600 hours of trauma-informed case counseling.

This in-depth, individualized support helped 43 students graduate with a high-school diploma in 2014 — we can’t wait to see how many students cross the stage in their cap and gown in 2015!

Because we provide graduates one year of college and career support, 82% of our graduates are still enrolled in college and/or employed one year post-graduation.

Thank you for being a part of this success!

Recently, Oakland has become the seed of innovation and people are flocking to our city. At Civicorps, we want to ensure that each person has the opportunity to participate in this renaissance.

Civicorps helps young adults, age 18-26, achieve what they never thought possible — graduating with a high-school diploma and continuing onto college.

Not only do we have a 74% graduation rate, but also one year after graduation, 82% of our graduates are still enrolled in college and/or employed.

The key to our success is that we provide a space for youth to heal from past trauma and to reconnect with their talents and aspirations.
